The Mediterranean Chicken wrap was delicious. Ingredients were very fresh. Air conditioner wasn't working and the decor could use an update, but the menu is creative and the place seemed clean. I would come back.

I have wanted to eat at the Summerhouse for breakfast for a while, however without reservations the wait is usually too long on weekends. I finally remembered to make reservations and went this morning. The menu was pretty extensive and somewhat unique, however the service...More
